Effective candidate generation & engagement

  1. 1. Effective Candidate Generation & Engagement WSP L & D Deepak D S
  2. 2. “The expert knows more and more about less and less until he knows everything about nothing.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
  3. 3. Your First Impression Matters! • “You have only one chance to make a first impression.” • This old adage is especially true in recruiting. • Impression a candidate gets of a job opportunity • And also of you as a recruiter • Make a good first impression, though, and you might be on your way to building a lasting relationship and potentially great hire for your company or client.
  4. 4. First Impression MATTERS!!! • Be honest and upfront • Let candidates know how you found them • Always give candidates a quick overview of the job • Let candidates know how to contact you • Follow up no matter their expressed level of interest
  5. 5. Too many calls from too many recruiters??? How do you stand out?
  6. 6. Before reaching out for the phone, • Know your client well beforehand in order to answer each of the candidate’s queries. • Do not blindly call candidates based on just one skill as mentioned in the JD • Spend enough time on the candidate’s profiles to validate them in accordance with the position. • Speak to candidates only if they match at least 50% with the requirement.
  7. 7. While on the phone • Spend enough time with the candidates to understand their needs, expectations and ambitions with regards to their career. • Approach as a friend with whom they can confide and build a rapport right from the start. • Remember to make a difference with your first call to stand out amongst your peers & competition.
  8. 8. • Remember each candidate you speak to, has a potential to be considered for other positions as well in future. • Always read the JD out to the candidate and ensure they understand it. • Make sure to follow up your conversation with an email detailing the opportunity. • Submit the candidate only if you are completely sure of him/her getting shortlisted. • No “Bhejke dekho na, phir dekhenge”
